WIP: Resin & Squig Shading

What?! Is that clear resin there to add bling to the base? Hell yeah! How about a few more angles...


 Gorgeous! I can;t tell you how happy I am with that XD
Riding that high I plowed right into the giant squig shading, claws, eyes and assembly.
Sorry, no color guide this time either, glazes and shades all blended together right on the mini. You'll notice he's cooler in the back because that part will be "inside that cave" and warmer in the front where he will be stomping out of the cave mouth.
Here are some close up shots of his teef, claws and eyes...
 The sculptor of this baby made my job so bloody easy. It let me try all kinds of new things and so he's reaping the rewards with one of my best paint jobs to date! Here's a look at him all together...
Just a few more details and this whole piece will be ready for a future "How to transport a display model across the continent" post :)

Next Post: Finishing up the squig and base! Thanks for clicking, leave me questions, comments or critiques and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain.

  7. Dude ... that base is simply magnificent. Fantastic work. Now your miniatures have to live up to your base's high standards. No pressure then. ;) ^_^
